Greetings!

I was fishing one of my favourite fishing locations after about a year.
There was heavy netting when I was there. Usually the netting slows down later during the year though.
I only caught a few small ones and didn't take much pics. I'll share what we caught though.
My friend was fishing with me and he caught the biggest MJ of this trip. I caught the other MJ in the second pic.

I have some videos from the trip that I'll share in sometime....

Cheers!
Maruthu

Hello Maruthu,

Nice to get your report with the pictures of the beautiful MJ. Also saw the videos, which are improving ..... the language not so much!

Good to see you using plastic prawns, should catch you a nice barra someday!

Is that area near your home?

Regards,
Kingfish

Thank you kingfish!

It takes me about 12 hours on the bus for me to get there.
I'll see if I somehow get a change to go there again this year.
It was heavily netted when I was there, which usually is better later in the year.

Those prawns were getting a lot of attention, but a lot of missed hook sets as well.

The MJ looks beautiful. The videos are also good.
I wish I could hear stories about jelly fish sting from you [smilie=dj-wtf.gif]
I cannot believe it is almost 2 years since we went fishing in sea..

Nice catch there Maruthu! Keep 'em coming.

I happened to notice the St. Croix rod, is that a surf rod? is it the 4 piece travel surf? How do you like it nonetheless?

Cheers....

Thank you venkat!
I definitely don't want to be stung by those....

Yes, lets see if we can go to the shore when we get a chance sometime soon!

It is a one piece 7' St. Croix avid inshore rod.
I prefer one piece rods for inshore fishing and love them.

I like the St. Croix rod very much, but I love my 7', 1 piece G.Loomis Pro Blue rod that I pair with a Shimano Calcutta 300TE reel.
Perfect for fishing lures from the rocky terrain our west coast has to offer. Caught plenty of fish with it....

@Ulygun

Maruthu has high end gear that will not be suitable for someone just taking up spin fishing . Be warned!

Great report and videos Maruthu. Love the barra fishing in the shallow rock pools. Who makes those shrimp, they look very realistic and well made.
Nice picture of MJ on the rocks [smilie=superkewl.gif] , and good job Dhurvesh on the nice MJ.

You are absolutely right kingfish. Maruthu has a huge collection of rod and reels. I know he usually has 3 different setups for any given specification. Anything you want to catch from trout to large GT. One thing I learned from Maruthu, you can never have too many gear ;)

Thank you Binu!

Zerek makes those shrimp. Kind of on the expensive side for a softplastic in my opiion.
Lost a lot of hook ups from Bream this time on those shrimp. Will be dropshotting next time :-)

We should go there sometime and spend three days fishing different spots around that area.

@Kingfish and Binu!

I love my $150 Abu reels (as opposed to over $200 spinning reels)
With just a drag upgrade (carbontex and SS metal washers) they work like a charm :-)

@Kingfish, Binu
Thanks for the much needed warning! My hunt for a surf setup is I think almost complete, I will post all the details on a separate thread!

@Maruthu,
May be we could hangout this December when I'm in India on vacation, you could teach me a thing or two on how you snag these monsters!

Cheers..
